Food has the ability to connect people. Be it the Italian originated pizza being devoured in India and Australia,or the many Chinese restaurants serving across the globe; cuisines have played a significant role is creating multicultural awareness. We are fortunate to enjoy a diverse palate, with international cuisines and unique flavor within close reach.
Gone are the days when food entailed a sense of monotony. Be it cooking or eating; the vast variety of flavor and ingredient has revolutionized our diet. The enormous change in eating patterns has given the food industry a huge boom. The coolest thing that has come out as a result of this food revolution is online food marketplaces. From eating with new people and diversifying ones cross-cultural experiences, to sharing ones meal for satisfying the entrepreneurial knack, these web-based ventures have really given the whole eating experience an enhanced flavor.
My most recent experience with one such website was in London. This was when I gave scrumpshi.com a shot. The most interesting aspect of this food-sharing website was how it encouraged people to ‘share’ their meals with their neighbors. The prices were economical and the options very interesting. I browsed the sellers’ menu for under 3 minutes to find dishes like Mexican beef steak, Lebanese kebabs and shepherd’s pie. The logistical aspect has also been kept into consideration as it advertises dishes available nearby.
Londoners can now also earn some money by simply uploading their meal on a user-friendly website.Its highly recommend it to home chefs, those looking to make more money or simply anyone who has more food than they can eat.
